8 SIMPLE STEP #2 Kitchen Staples Nothing is worse than going to grab an essential ingredient, only to see you're empty. Stock up on Filippo Berio ® Olive Oil's (filippoberio.com) variety of options for your family-favorite recipes. Extra Virgin works best in dressings and for sautéing veggies; Extra Light is the preferred option when baking up brownies, muffins and cakes; and traditional Olive Oil works in higher-temperature recipes such as roasting root vegetables and pan frying meats. SIMPLE STEP #1 Quick-Cooking Protein What is packed with nutrients, including 25% Daily Value for choline and 6 grams protein, and offers all 9 essential amino acids? And what cost-effective source of protein cooks up in seconds? A large egg. Vital Farms ® Pasture-Raised Eggs (vitalfarms.com) goes one step further. Vital Farms ® Pasture-Raised Large Grade A Eggs come from hens with room to roam on farms from Georgia to Kansas audited from the Humane Farm Animal Care non-profit as Certified Humane Raised and Handled. ® Do you have time to prepare chicken for dinner? You probably have 5 to 10 minutes to spare! Get dinner on the table in no time with Smart Chicken ® Organic Chicken Tenders (smartchicken.com). Offering 26 grams protein per 4-ounce serving, Smart Chicken ® Organic Chicken Tenders are the perfect size for quick cooking and families with hungry little mouths to feed. Simple Meals Do home cooked meals need to take a lot of time to prepare? Not necessarily. Their nutritional advantage over restaurant options — less total fat, saturated fat, sodium, sugar and calories — make them the preferred choice for your wellness, too. Follow the K.I.S.S. (KEEP IT SIMPLE, SWEETIE) method to food preparation, and both your health and wallet will have you coming back for more.
